Grounded ship blocked Odense Port

The Dutch ship Arklow Valour from Rotterdam sailed aground on Tuesday morning when it was entering Odense harbor at Lindø. As the ridge went into one of the sides of the canal, the vessel turned around and crossed the canal to block traffic to and from the port.

"The ship had Danish pilots on board, and as it is about to enter the canal, it hits the side of the old yard," says managing director of Lindø Port of Odense A/S, Carsten Aa, to fyens.dk.

The ship was grounded about 01.15 on Tuesday night when it was on its way to Unicon A/S, which produces concrete. On Tuesday morning around 10.30 a tugboat arrived to free the vessel.
No spillage was detected and nobody was harmed.

Fyens.dk was in contact with the ship's captain on Tuesday morning. He could not tell what the exact cause of the accident was and did not want to answer any further questions.
The ship, built in 2017, sails under the Dutch flag and is operated by Arklow Shipping, which is headquartered in Ireland. It is designed for the transport of cement.
